Tottenham news: Harry Kane responds to Fabio Paratici claims and delivers Nuno verdict | Football | Sport

Tottenham forward Harry Kane has revealed that he feels ‘loved’ by the club in response to Fabio Paratici’s admission that he cannot wait to see the 27-year-old play for Spurs next season. Kane has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City in recent weeks amid reports suggesting that he is keen to seek a new challenge.

The England skipper has never attempted to hide his desire to win trophies at the highest level, but Spurs have been unable to end their long and painful 13-year wait for major honours since clinching the League Cup in 2008.

Club chairman Daniel Levy is reportedly determined to keep hold of Kane into next season and beyond, with Paratici suggesting last week that Spurs will take the firmest of stances with regards to their star man this summer.

“Keeping him is not just my goal, it’s our goal as a club,” the 48-year-old told Sky in Italy. “I can’t wait to watch him play live.”

Kane, who will be aiming to lead England into the Euro 2020 final with a win over Denmark on Wednesday, has since revealed that he is yet to discuss his immediate future with Paratici.

However, he also admitted that he was honoured to receive the Italy native’s approval, vowing to reach out once all has been said and done on the international stage.

“Of course as a player you want to be wanted, you want to feel like you’re loved, which I do,” Kane told talkSPORT when quizzed on Paratici’s comments.

“I haven’t had the chance to talk to any of these people yet. I’m sure we’ll get to know each other after the tournament, have a phone call or two once I get a week or two of holiday.

“To get praise from big people from football is great, it gives you confidence, it gives you motivation so of course it’s nice to hear.”

Kane also declared that he is looking forward to meeting Nuno Espirito Santo upon his return from England duty as the Portuguese boss aims to improve on last season’s seventh-placed finish in the Premier League.

DON’T MISS

The 47-year-old took charge at Tottenham earlier this month after a lengthy search for Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor and will be looking to hit the ground running after leaving his post at Wolves at the end of the previous campaign.

“Whenever a new manager comes in, I guess there’s a level of excitement around the club,” said Kane.

“Obviously, I’ve not been there and not had any contact with him. I’m away with England now and my full focus is on here.

“Hopefully, we’ve got a week left. He’s a great manager and did a great job at Wolves and got them playing a really good way.

“Let’s get back and I’m sure we’ll be in contact after the tournament.”

Kane has also been linked with Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain ahead of next season, with the speculation around his future at Spurs refusing to die down.

He remains under contract until the summer of 2024, suggesting that Levy and Paratici will hold all the cards this summer.

The former Leicester City loanee scored twice for England on Saturday evening as the Three Lions breezed past Ukraine to book their place in a second major tournament semi-final in three years.
